There's nothing wrong with Epicenter.   I enjoy getting Epicenter maps.

Used to hate it.

As I’ve said; had two good games on EpiTrident; one in Dunkerque, one in Colorado; then had an epiphany.

After that I’ve liked it.

One would think that folks who like to brawl would like Epicenter.

I like to brawl...

The problem is when the whole red team also likes to brawl...

& the rest of your team doesn't :-0

But I have never hated epicenter....

I actually like it now...

& I abhorred it when it 1st came out...but never hated it.

My main complaint with it was it stayed & Bastion was removed...

Just nerf the damn forts already & bring back the funniest (-: spell checker...funnest :-) mode the game ever had (other than the temporary fast DD modes like Rouge Wave & the other 1 I can't remember the name of).

Woo Hoo...Rouge Wave is returning...YAY!!!

I want Bastion Mode back with player controlled forts. (I want to use Fort Drum.)

I think the player that capped the cap (most points towards it on shared captures) should be able to prioritize a target for the forts to shoot at...but only if they are still in the cap & haven't left since capping it.

& a partial XP (spotting damage equivalent) boost for any damage the first does to ships they have selected.

An icon above their ship to indicate to the team the benefit of them staying in that cap...not that it would always be best for them to do that...but anyway.

Literally player controlled; as in Fort Drum is the ship/unit I bring to the game.

(Possibly including an ‘airfield,’ and replacing the carrier slot. Maybe you spawn randomly at 2-3 possible ‘base’ locations? At least folks couldn’t cry about a ‘carrier’ hiding in such a case.)

Oh...that could be cool as an option...but wouldn't be able to be in the random rotation...

I was referring to it returning as a random rotation mode***.

***Mode ain't the best term for this:

Co-op/Random/etc are the modes...

Brainfarting on the proper terminology for Standard/Domination/Epicenter/Bastion/etc. in relation to them being types of random/co-op options.

Map types, I think?

I hate ranked, I started with 3 star left, and after 13 games I am now stuck at 3 star left again.

I guess a middle finger for me saying you ain't going to get the 200 dub, 200 steel . 

Edit:

Did 4 today, 2 step forward 2 step back.

Screw it, I am done with it.

rotation. took me awhile to figure this out.

Its a "stand off" mode. Either you spin clock wise or counter clock wise while holding zones. Or not.

Epicenter is fine, but I agree with the win more to move on is moronic...

I call them battle modes, as opposed random/coop/operations, etc. which I call game modes.

Has Rank fatigue set in yet ??? All I know, someone (or percentage of players) will like the offerings of Rank..

Its an acquired taste.

Agreed. Those hating Epicenter are very likely to be either long-range snipers or campers (based on my observation). In Epicenter maps, the team with more so-called close-range engagement haters is more likely to lose.

A couple of remarks here.

1. I don't think that one MUST brawl in epicenter, though it does help.  That said, I don't think that it's easy or perhaps possible to win on epicenter if one never gets onto some of the rings.  But that's not really any different from domination.  If you don't challenge the caps in Domination, you're unlikely to win in that mode either.  I don't think that winning is likely in Domination or Epicenter if you stay far outside of the caps/rings and challenge for control with long range sniping.

2. Bastion.  I never really liked Bastion because it wasn't self-evident how to properly play that mode.  Domination and Epicenter are pretty darned obvious how to play.  Bastion never was.

3. Rogue Wave.  I hated Rogue Wave.  I hate all of the game modes that are 100% DD play.  They're boring AF, not to mention the fact that your ships don't look like real ships in the least.
